      Season 2 – She's Gotta Have It

      2019 Comedy Romance TRAILER for She's Gotta Have It: Season 2 Trailer List
      73% 11 Reviews Tomatometer 43% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score Iconic filmmaker Spike Lee revisits his first feature film with this Netflix original series of the same name. Brooklyn-based artist Nola Darling struggles to stay true to herself and her dreams while dividing her time between her friends, her job and her lovers -- all three of them. That trio includes married businessman and father Jamie Overstreet, photographer and self-described "biracial Adonis" Greer Childs and chatty Michael Jordan fan Mars Blackmon. In addition to creating the series, Lee directs all the episodes and serves as an executive producer alongside wife Tonya Lewis Lee. Read More Read Less

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      She's Gotta Have It wades through some narrative wilderness after shifting away from its founding romantic conceit, but Spike Lee's vibrant eye and DeWanda Wise's darling performance keep proceedings engaging.

      Previous Brooklyn White Bitch Media Ultimately, the groundedness of She's Gotta Have It's second season gives each character more depth and helps viewers understand their choices. Mar 12, 2021 Full Review Carmen Phillips Autostraddle What's merciful about Season Two of She's Gotta Have It is that, for once, Spike Lee loosens his grip just enough to let a black woman character speak for herself. Mar 24, 2020 Full Review Hannah Giorgis The Atlantic Unconvincing as breezy sitcom or weighty satire, Season 2 of She's Gotta Have It diverges further from Lee's romance-centric source material but offers its protagonist little imaginative recourse. May 30, 2019 Full Review Sumiko Wilson NOW Toronto This season was so distinctly a "Spike Lee joint" that fans of the filmmaker might be able to overlook the underdeveloped characters and stylistic tropes. Jun 3, 2019 Full Review Lapacazo Magrira Sandoval New York Amsterdam News Wise devours the screen every time she appears. She is a star, no question and she's getting better. Jun 1, 2019 Full Review Nicole Homer Black Nerd Problems At times, the show seems to want to be an ensemble, but never makes it there. Each of these characters introduces someone new to the story to the point that the narrative feels crowded. May 29, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous Audience Member She's Gotta Have It - Season 2 was brilliant and beautiful ... it discussed the hard topics of social constructs and made them stimulating to the eye. DeWanda wise was wonderful to watch as Nola - she has morphed and changed and that is what we wanted to see. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review ma'ark t Not as good as the first season. Although it touches on important social justice issues that are topical in America the story and writing is just not there. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The show is about a Spike Lee in drag as Nola Darling. Everything that comes out of her mouth seems like a lecture to the un-cultured and un-woke masses. Nothing sounds like a flesh and bone woman that walks this earth - unless Spike now identifies as a woman. Even the sex scenes devoid of romance or any genuine feeling, seem written by and for guys. I genuinely felt sorry for DeWanda Wise in the exploitive and gratuitous lesbian sex scene in the season opener. From there it only got worse. At the end of the day, Spike's vision of an artist is just not that intriguing. I'd rather watch BBC gardening shows. At least their creations don't need to be explained in faux profound treatises by their own creators as the artists in SGHI2. So were left with a beautiful lead perhaps talented but with little to do but smile all knowingly and roll her eyes. I can't remember a moment in the entire season of anything close to registering as a true emotion from her character Nola Darling. I can't blame her but shallow end kiddy pool writing.
